Nice place
A bit expensive only complaint construction vehicle noise before 7am

Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square, Washington
Could be better
The room was small, but very comfortable. The bathroom was great, especially the shower - and plenty of hot water. A lot of noise from the room next door, until late into the night, some sort of party. The valet service for my car was the worst part: the people were nice, but they badly scraped my car's back bumper. I filled out forms but still have not received any paperwork from them to get it fixed. 1 year old car, not happy.

Staycation In DC
The Sofitel in DC was amazing! I took a little staycation and had a great time at the Hotel. They went above and beyond to ensure that I was taken care of and cared for. I couldn’t ask for more. The room was great and service was perfect.
